Boston – Looking for your next adventure by bike or on foot? Look no further than the brand new “Trailmap” website, launching Monday, May 15, 2017 just in time for Bay State Bike Week at trailmap.mapc.org.
Created by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) in Boston, ‘Trailmap’ offers a comprehensive online glimpse at all the trails in Metro Boston and beyond.
It features trails and paths accessible by foot, bike lanes, and multi-use paths. Members of the public can contribute additions to the map, so it acts as a living online resource, and local planners and advocates can download the data for projects in individual cities and towns.
Users can either view on their desktop or mobile device, and are able to drop a pin on the map to their current location for information on nearby trails and paths and other biking and walking infrastructure or amenities. It’s designed to be continually updated and refined, and used in real time by people throughout Eastern Massachusetts looking for transportation or recreational opportunities.
Join MAPC on Monday, May 15 at Noon on the 3rd floor of 60 Temple Place in Boston for a demo of ‘Trailmap’ as well as an update on LandLine, MAPC’s project to develop a connected greenway network around the region, as well as information on the latest expansion plans for Hubway, Greater Boston’s bike share system.
Check it out! Visit Trailmap @ trailmap.mapc.org to interact and explore.
